Welcome to ArtBase Anthologies, a New Repertory Program for Digital Art

ArtBase Anthologies, a new program showcasing the history of born-digital art, launches today with an online exhibition of newly restored artworks by Auriea Harvey and Entropy8Zuper!

Each month, ArtBase Anthologies will present a selection of works – either a deep dive into a a solo artist, a snapshot of a historical moment, or a thematic curation of works from the recent or more distant past. The series aims to deepen and enrich the public understand of digital art as a whole, and to offer an equitable accounting of its history. Each selection will be accompanied by public online and IRL events. 

ArtBase Anthologies 001 features four artworks – one solo project by Harvey, and three made with her longtime collaborator Michaël Samyn under the name Entropy8Zuper! These works may be seen in emulation on the exhibition microsite along with contextual information, images, and software downloads.

This installment of the series was curated with Regina Harsanyi / Museum of the Moving Image in conjunction with Harvey’s ongoing survey show “My Veins are the Wires, My Body is Your Keyboard.” Conservation of these works was undertaken by Dragan Espenschied and Rhizome. A panel discussion at Onassis ONX in New York City (and streamed online) on April 3 contextualizes the program. 

ArtBase Anthologies is made possible by a grant from Teiger Foundation.
